So far for me and dh there is the happily ever after, we have been married 18 years and have not had issues to make me think otherwise. I think it depends on the people and if you know how to pick you battles and not sweat the small things. Laughing alot helps too.

Dh and I have been married three years, and we're very happy and in love. It takes work, it isn't always perfect, and we deal with life's up and downs, but we're a team. We work hard to stay connected and keep our marriage strong and healthy.

 I believe there is but we have to know that it's not a fairytale and "happily" needs to be defined differently. 

Being happy with someone else takes a lot of effort and communication.  It also means that it's not going to be perfect everyday of your life and accepting things that may be different than what you expected.

DH and I are living our happily ever after. We've been married for 20 years and I don't see not sleeping in the same place when we are both home. We aren't just lovers or parents, we are partners. We support each other and compliment each other's personality. I can honestly say that I hope he gets to be my prince charming for at least another 20 years, and hoping for even longer.

Yes and no.  My husband and I have been married for 12 yrs.  We have experienced happily ever after.  Frustrated ever after.  Blissfull ever after.  I'm-going-to-kill-you ever after.  Contentment ever after.  And back to happily ever after.  As you grow and change, so will your relationship.  Just because you guys don't get all crazy doen't mean that you are sunk.  It means that some of the bloom has rubbed off and that happens when you walk into a bathroom after they've pooped, seen them vomit, they've watched you give birth, and smelled their morning breath.

Well you've gone from married to roommates. Why are you sleeping on the couch? You can't ignore your relationship or put it on the back burners and expect it to grow and blossom. You should be enjoying each other, doing things together, having those long discussions by the bonfire. Don't give up. If it's worth fighting for get back in there and get your happily ever after.

My husband and I have had our ups and downs. But we both feel we are honestly living happily ever after. We have been together 14 years married 11. Every day is a gift on this earth. Love is the greatest gift we are given as humans, don't let it go to waste!

There is but you both have to work to keep it going.

I'll be married 9 years. We've had great times and horrible times, but we've made it work.

Good luck.
